Author(s): Manu TG, Gangadhara Naik B, Murali R and Nagaraja H

Abstract: Maize is one of the important cereal crops of India. Maize is utilized as a staple food by the lower strata of the society and also used as a crop par excellence for industrial use. Maize is cultivated under diverse environmental conditions. Among the foliar diseases affecting maize, the turcicum leaf blight is of worldwide importance causing moderate to severe losses in yield. Host plant resistance is considered as most practical, feasible and economical method of plant disease management. Hence 115 inbred lines were screened to know their reaction to turcicum leaf blight disease. Out of which 21 lines showed resistant reaction with a disease score of 1 and 51 lines showed moderately resistant reaction whereas, remaining lines showed moderately susceptible to highly susceptible reaction.
